    Yeah been there pretty much for almost 7 years minus about 4 months trying something else. It's ok, but nowhere near as good as when I first started working there.

    lady @ recruiting told me today that as a local driver I could do,in a regular working day - 2 loads @ $ 95 a load , sometimes 3 , if all went perfect( seldom )...around $180/190 a day ....not bad , depending on how many hrs that might take, and how physical it gets..Right now, my nights are, 13 / 14 hr long, hauling for ford @ $ 170 / day ...might be worth the switch...any:biggrin_25523: comments?

    Kevin called me today and wants me to come and interview in Jackson Tn. I can do regional or system, but I really don't care too much about going to Canada. I guess whatever pays best.
